Structure, sequence and polymorphism in the HLA-D region.


Molecular analysis of the HLA-D region has uncovered a complex array of related genes encompassing a minimum of 6 alpha and 7 beta chain sequences. A high level of polymorphism is characteristic of the DQ alpha and beta genes, as well as DR beta. The DP genes, both alpha and beta, are also polymorphic, though to a lesser extent. The genes fit into the… (More)
